I have 2 computers connected through a Linksys SE2500 ( http://www.linksys.com/en-apac/products/switches/SE2500/). It's either CAT 5e or 6. There is 20 feet of cable total, maybe.
The 2500 is connected to another router.
The PCs are Windows 7 home and Windows 7 pro. Working off the home PC to the pro PC is amazingly slow. We're talking 50kb/s. Yes...KILO. Trying to navigate folders is painfully slow. If I go to the pro and copy to the home machine it's fast.
Internet connection is fine on both PCs.
It did not used to be like this...obviously I changed something but I'm not sure what it was.
Both PCs have MS Sec essentials. Connection to the 'net is fine.
I started a new thread because the fixes on other threads didn't work for me.
The home PC only has 100Mb speed via it's laptop port. The pro machines a realtek GBe motherboard port.
I turned off RDC, speed and duplex on auto.
I pinged the pro from the home and no packet loss.
Does anyone have any ideas?

How are you doing a copy, are you running homegroups?
Lets actual speed test we can use.. Robocopy is part of windows u can use that to copy files between machines so we can see tests. Also lets do a network test for speed with say iperf or netio
Simple exe - you copy the exe to both machines. On one machine you run with -s as the server, and then on other machine you run with -c ipaddressorname of the server machine and lets see some results
So here is example of iperf in one direction where 192.168.1.8 is the server.. Lets see your test in both directions
